Zero to cloud faster than a cup of coffee

Which is faster? Getting started with Infrastructure as Code or brewing a cup of French press coffee? I race against myself in this video. I deploy infrastructure to AWS and Azure from a single cloud agnostic blueprint in less than 10 minutes.

Tuono is eliminating the heavy lifting required to get started with cloud automation. It can take days or weeks to get started with Infrastructure as Code and the required ecosystem of supporting tools with other technologies. In this demo video, I log into a brand new Tuono account, just as a customer does, and have infrastructure deployed in under 10 minutes. There are no tricks here. Tuono simply makes it less complicated. There is nothing to download, install, or upgrade. We only need 3 things in order to deploy infrastructure in AWS or Azure.

  1. Cloud credentials
  2. Blueprint that defines the infrastructure
  3. Environment to link the Blueprint to the cloud venue

Check out the Zero to cloud demo

I decided to grind the coffee by hand. I did not want anyone to think I extended the time by grinding manually, so I made sure I finished before the water boiled. The effort you see in the video is real and, yes, I need a better hand grinder. Also, I filmed this in the evening and after drinking the coffee I made, I was awake until 1am. Note to self: Enjoy my French press earlier in the day.

This is a full copy of the code used in the demo. It comes as a sample Blueprint in every new Tuono portal account.

If anyone out there is coffee obsessed, I highly recommend DOMA Coffee. They are a small roaster in Idaho. I had the opportunity to meet the team when I drove across the US in 2019 and they are a great group of people.
